Celebrate The Great Gatsby with Moët & Chandon

Celebrate The Great Gatsby with Moët & Chandon

As official champagne partner of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby film, Moët & Chandon toasts a cinema event and an era of style. From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role, the highly anticipated movie will be in theaters beginning June 6, 2013. The film’s joyful exuberance and festive celebrations is a natural match for the world’s most-loved champagne.

An Era of Bold Celebration and Elegant Style

Taking place at the height of the ‘Roaring Twenties’, The Great Gatsby’s big and bold yet elegant onscreen celebrations are exactly in line with Moët & Chandon’s style. The House is visible in the film’s celebrations, with generous glasses of Moët Impérial and the House’s grand gestures such as champagne pyramids and larger-than-life bottles all perfectly expressing the panache and the extroverted flair of the period with Moët & Chandon.

Catherine Martin, the film’s costume and production designer, says:
“The exceptional quality of the 1921 vintage made it the drink of choice for a man with epicurean tastes and connections like Gatsby. It certainly didn’t hurt either that Moët & Chandon still had the original label artwork from that 1921 vintage that we were able to reproduce for the film. For these reasons, Baz and I felt it was not only a credible fit for the film both creatively and historically, but a direct statement about Jay Gatsby’s character that he would impress by only filling his house with the finest available alcohol on the planet.”

The Great Gatsby and the Champagne of Cinema: A Stylish Match

Known as the champagne of cinema, Moët & Chandon’s role in The Great Gatsby is the latest in a long line of onscreen appearances dating back to the earliest days of film. Featured in movies of many genres starring Hollywood’s marquee names and an official partner of some of the industry’s most prestigious red-carpet events and film festivals, Moët & Chandon has always been synonymous with the glamour and grandeur of cinema.

About Moët & Chandon:
Moët & Chandon is the champagne of success and glamour since 1743. Renowned for its achievements, firsts and legendary pioneering spirit, Moët & Chandon is the Maison that introduced champagne to the world. For nearly a century, Moët & Chandon has celebrated the glamour and the red carpet magic of international cinema.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.
